Marquis Who's Who is a publication that gives biographies of various people in a number of different fields, such as "Who's Who in America," "Who's Who in Medicine and Healthcare" and "Who's Who in American Politics." Those who have biographies in the directories are deemed important by the Marquis committee in some way, and they must either be nominated or chosen by the committee for a specific reason.
Once nominated, candidates must send a biography to the committee for review. If the committee agrees that the individual should be featured in one of the directories, the nominee will be notified about three months prior to the publication of the book, according to Marquis.Learn more about Career Aspirations
